success not failure

Hello to all!!

Can you believe that Christmas Eve is one week from today?  I’m so excited.  We are in good shape at the Bey house.  We have one detail we have to work out for our daughter but otherwise we are good.  No idea what we are going to do for Christmas dinner but we’ll figure it out.  Open to suggestions!!

Yesterday was a bit of a struggle exercise wise.  I did go to the gym but I only made it through about 5 minutes of cardio.  Being without one of my meds for 36 hours was just too much.  I don’t feel bad every day.  I have days where I feel tired but most times I can talk myself through it.  A medication mess up is different, it’s not just tired.  It’s hard to describe but its a hollow feeling.  My arms and legs and my hands and feet feel like there’s nothing inside and my face tingles.  That’s the best I can do to explain it.  It’s a tired that I can’t work through.  Anyway, thankfully is doesn’t happen often.

I am still focusing on those calories, carbs, proteins and fats.  Keeping everything where it should be.  I am picking up my exercise, working harder at home like I used to.  Taking my focus of numbers is helping, I’m really starting to feel ok about letting that go.  Changing my mindset really is making a difference.  Making the decision to be healthy, not skinny, feels great and is less stressful.  I’m not ok with failing.

    Healthy is far more important. Skinny is just appearance. Food’s purpose is only to provide you with nutrition and energy. It doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it too, but if all it offers is pleasure without any other benefit, it doesn’t serve you. Glad to see the new mindset is helping. I always knew you could do it.

    Thank you Melanie!! I’m one extreme to the other but I am now finding the balance.
